I figure it's time I finally spill the beans...the hubs and I are expecting our very own pair of little baby feet in just 4 short months! I've been dying to share the news but I wanted to give it some time and - trust - you didn't need to hear my first trimester complaints.

I assure you this won't become a mummy blog but in the spirit of my news I thought I would share this great list with y'all. Building Baby's First Library: 25 Must Have Books

When I was a kid my favourite thing was being read to and going to the library (yes a little nerdy, but I'm a great speller now). It seemed like every weekend we would go to the library for a new weeks worth of books and Mom would cozy up in bed with me and read me a bedtime story. Dad would make up his own creative and funny stories with me as the star character. Going through this list of favourites was so nostalgic and I can't wait to start reading to our little babe (happy face).

My faves have alway been The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Jelly Belly, Mud Puddle, Are You My Mother?....(I could go on forever).

What are your favourite children's books? I have to start building our library!

I suggest having a books theme for your baby shower. This is what I did and it really got our collection off to a good start! If you want, say that second hands or hand-me-downs are ok, and you’ll get even more! A professor of mine gave me some Cat In the Hat books she used to read with her son, so cool!

Leo loves this book called “How Big?” and it was written in the ’50’s, I think. It was my sister’s and apparently there is a family history behind it…..anyways Leo loves it when I read it to him because of the repetition. However, for the record, Demetri is reading the GODelusion to Leo as well and he seems to enjoy that just as much. Go figure.
I like “Guess How Much I Love You” and anything Dr. Seuss. I started reading to Leo for my own sanity, and you know, it’s never too early to start reading to babies. It gives us some much needed quiet time together. Good luck!!!
